You might be surprised. Michael Smith has been making much thinner negatives than before he photographed in Chicago. The prints from these negatives are the best he's ever made, even though some of them have base fog of density 0.5. I was utterly stunned by these prints. BTW, he uses Super XX Pan, not Plus-X.
